Very Smelly Waiter – OMG I never will eat at this palce again. I was there on 6/30/2011 at lunch time and had the most nasty waiter anyone would ever want. The guys name was Frank he smelled so awful as if he never showers. The food was ok would of been alot better if i didn't have to spell the funk coming from this guy. I dont understand how a place this nice will have a smelly waiter. PLEASE GET RIDD OF HIM OR I CAN'T GO BACK.

This bistro does a brisk business, and with good reason: The menu offers a the complete range of Italian food. – The Scene
The place is light and airy, full of upscale families and couples. Service is fast and pleasant.

What to Order
One thing to remember is that portions are large. Papa J's is probably best known for its white pizza, with spinach and feta cheese. But an awesome option is the rosemary potato, with thin, crisp slices of potato on the basic white pie.

In Addition
If you're really hungry, order the antipasto for the table. It's filled with meats, cheese and olives over fresh greens and Italian dressing. Also popular is anything made with the veal meatballs--pasta, sandwiches and even the wedding soup.

Dream Food – accomodating staff, great wine selection, fabulous appetizer choices (fried calimari recommended). salad dressings -- not so great

I had the angel hair with shrimp in a marinara sauce. I also sampled the salmon. AMAZING

Traditional Italian – A fine resteraunt with the ambiance and service of a typical resteraunt in Italy. The food is excellent with good portions and well prepared. Service is good to excellent.
